Stephen Curry is one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. He holds the record for most 3-pointers made in an NBA season with 402 in 2015-16. He’s also second and third on that list. The guy can shoot.
On Thursday, a video appeared on Instagram from the organization Active Faith Sports, where Curry announced that for every 3-pointer he made in the video, he’d donate $1,000, to go with $100,000 he originally pledged, to help those devastated by Hurricane Harvey in Houston.
Big shout out to one of Active Faith's owners @stephencurry30 for helping with the Hurricane relief efforts in Houston. Active Faith is donating $1,000 for every shot made out of 25. Steph was generous enough to match that number and offer $100,000 to be donated to the victims of this devastating storm. Prayers are necessary. Prayer + Action is Powerful! #ActiveFaith #HoustonStrong #InJesusNameIPlay
Curry made 18 of the 25 3-pointers, bringing the total he will donate to $118,000.
The two-time MVP and two-time NBA champion had a message at the end of the video to all the families who have been hit hard by the storm: “Praise to the families, we got your back.”
